A regular performer at many of the world’s celebrated concert venues, he has appeared with the orchestras of Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Colorado, Detroit, Philadelphia, St. Louis, San Francisco, and Seattle, as well as the philharmonics of Helsinki, London, Los Angeles, New Yrok, and the Leipzig Gewandhaus and Zürich Tonhalle, among many others. He received Grammy nominations for his recordings of the Barber Concerto with Leonard Slatkin and the St. Louis Symphony, and the Bloch and Benjamin Lees Violin Concertos under the baton of John McGlaughlin Williams. In this master class, he coaches Bienen School violin students.
